|Yani Tseng (Allison)|
YANI TSENG IS MIGHTY INFLUENTIAL, according to Time magazine. Tseng, the Rolex Rankings No. 1 player (top female golfer on the planet), was named by the magazine as one of “the 100 most influential people in the world.” The list is comprised of “breakouts, pioneers, moguls, leaders and icons.”
Hall-of-Famer Annika Sorenstam penned the Tseng mini-profile for Time, which opened:
Golf is a game of numbers. Success is quantified statistically. On the current landscape of women’s golf, Yani Tseng’s dominance is unquestionable. At 23, she’s already won a career’s worth of tournaments and prize money. But even more impressive than her win total, scoring average and No. 1 world ranking is the way she wins.
The youthful Tseng has won 15 LPGA titles, including five majors, and is clearly golf’s most dominant player in the post-Tiger Woods era.
Others who made the TIME 100 List include Warren Buffet, Tim Tebow, Rihanna, Jeremy Lin, Claire Danes, Matt Lauer, Hillary Clinton, Stephen Colbert, Adele and, as you might guess, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
